    T-Bones on my Stacked Webers

    We got some T-Bones on sale, so I figured I’d throw them on the Smokey Joe for some charcoal flavor. I like to set my SJ on my Weber “Q”, so it’s more comfortable than bending down to the little guy, plus that way I can utilize the side tables on the Weber Q.

    The flavor was awesome as usual, after marinating a few hours in Teriyaki Marinade, but I was reminded why I always buy Ribeyes when they’re on sale. The NY Strip sides of the T-Bones were tough, and nothing like what I’m used to. Hard to believe these were marked “Choice”, but this seems to happen to me often when I buy T-Bones or NY Strip Steaks. They just can’t compare to a Ribeye.

    Anyway Everything tasted Great, and I snapped some pics for you guys.

    My Upgraded Smoking Porch should be ready to go again soon.

    Hope you enjoy,


    Only need about a half of a Chimney for my little Smokey Joe:

    Here’s where my Weber “Q” saves wear & tear on the Bear’s back.
    Note---I threw some Cherry Pellets on the coals too:

    Good thing these T-Bones weren’t any bigger, or they wouldn’t have fit on my Smokey Joe!!

    Nearly Done:

    Had to cut mine up a bit to fit it on my Hot Plate with some Sides:

    Bear’s Supper——T-Bone, Green Beans, and a few slices of Breaded Pan-Fried Zuke Slices (Ala Mrs Bear):

    Also a nice slice of Mrs Bear’s Blueberry Zuke Bread (Cake):

    Wow, you used charcoal. Ha.

    Looks awesome Bear
  6. Hi Bear: My wife and I enjoy Zuccini all summer, any chance Mrs. Bear would give up that blueberry zucchini bread recipe. It looks delicious. Not to far North of me there are quite a few blueberry farms that we go and pick in late July. Thanks Tim

    Thanks Gary!!

    Thank You Adam!!

    LOL-----First time I used charcoal since my Open-Heart Fiasco, because my Grill is temporarily at ground level. No climbing the steps with Smokey Joe & a chimney full of glowing red coals.

    I used to use charcoal a lot.


    Also: Thanks Gary & Adam for the Points!!

    Looks Great Bear!! We have some T-Bones in the freezer from a steer we had.

    The strip side is usually a little disappointing for us as well.

    Like the double stack![​IMG]

    Points to the Mrs for the zucchini blueberry bread!!

    And Thanks for the Points.

    Thank You!!

    T-Bones Aint Cheap either, but they should be.

  14. Thank-You Mrs. Bear, we still have some zucchini growing out back, will pick up some blueberries and enjoy with dinner on Sunday. Thanks again Bear.  Tim
  15. Just thinking out loud since you freeze those loafs, if you mailed me a couple overnight they would be ready to eat when they got here

    Good lookin cook bear! I dig my smokey joe out once in awhile to cook some burgers or steaks. It does a good job and doesn't use much charcoal.
    Every now and then you need to get back to your roots :biggrin:
